How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.

The only real competitor to the hyper-luxurious Mulsanne is the Rolls-Royce Phantom.

The Mulsanne's more fluid, modern design will appeal to some where the more staid, classical design of the Phantom will find favor with others.

Both are exquisitely luxurious, but the Mulsanne is by far the more powerful of the two, despite the Phantom's V-12 engine. It's hard to recommend either over the other, however, as both are excellent vehicles, well-designed and well-made.

They simply appeal to different types of people--a matter of personal preference.
